School Starts Tomorrow, welcome back video from the RCS Leadership Ensemble

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Leadership Ensemble is so eager to start the new school year, they can’t keep their excitement contained. They created this video to celebrate the first day, in hopes of exciting students and easing first day jitters.

This school year, district leaders, teachers and staff will be focusing on promoting what it means to “live the habits of scholarship.” These habits include the district values:

  • Inquiry
  • Collaboration
  • Risk-Taking
  • Participation
  • Empathy

The leadership team want to demonstrate some of the values -collaboration, risk-taking and participation – through this welcome back video to show students that the habits of scholarship continue past graduation.
